Kuragehime 8

Sun, 02 Jan 2011 13:01:25 +0000

Episode 8 of Kuragehime, “Million Dollar Babies” (ミリオンダラー・ベイビーズ), begins with Kuranosuke ransacking a storage room for stuff to sell. Considering the sort of people the Amamizukan caters to, it’s no surprise that the particular room in question is full of the same stuff collected by a fetishist: cups of all sorts. While everyone else thinks […]

Episode 7 of Kuragehime, “Unemployed Financial Islands” (金融無職列島), starts off with Kuranosuke reminiscing over his closet, remembering a closet full of his mother’s clothes and the time he first arrived at the Kuboichi home with his mother, when Kuranosuke seemed to be about ten while Shuu seemed to be close or at college-age. Meanwhile, Shouko […]

Kuranosuke hasn’t quite thought through beyond dressing up the Amars, however, so he suggests going to a cafe […]

Episode 5 of Kuragehime, “I Want to be a Jellyfish” (私はクラゲになりたい), begins with Tsukimi sighing over her time with Shuu the previous day. Especially the last bit where she was exposed in her underwear, recalled in the form of a movie trailer, which prompts her to bash her head in an attempt to expunge the […]

Episode 4 of Kuragehime, “Let’s Meet at the Aquarium” (水族館で逢いましょう), begins with the Amamizukan residents cooking sweet potatoes, where Tsukimi suddenly has a flashback to a similar situation with her mother. Except her mother had doubled over at the end, so it’s a sad flashback that sends Tsukimi into a crying fit to the confusion […]

Episode 3 of Kuragehime, “Enchanted” (魔法をかけられて), begins with Kuranosuke dressing up to the chagrin of the male members in the family. His internal monologue reveals that the biggest reason he cross-dresses is to destroy any prospect of himself becoming a politician, something he loathes of ever becoming. Obviously the father does know of Kuranosuke’s habits, […]

Episode 2 of Kuragehime, “Sukiyaki Western Matsusaka” (スキヤキ・ウエスタン・マツサカ), starts out from the end of the previous episode. Tsukimi is desperately trying to hide the existence of a fashionable person from the other residents of the Amamizukan, presumably fearing that it might end up with her being kicked out. It’s even worse that the person in […]

One blurb for Kuragehime says: The story centers around Kurashita Tsukimi, a huge fan of jellyfish and a girl who moves to Tokyo to become an illustrator. She moves into an apartment complex that is full of fujoshi with a no-men-allowed rule. However, one day, Tsukimi invites a stylishly fashionable woman to stay at her […]

Hiatus … or Death!?

For like half a year, my anime blogging had effectively stopped. (For that matter, all my other blogging had stopped as well.) This is mostly because a big change in routine has put a crimp on my blogging activities. It wasn’t that I lacked the time to blog, but rather that I didn’t feel like […]

Dance in the Vampire Bund 11

Mon, 12 Apr 2010 14:19:22 +0000

In episode 11 of Dance in the Vampire Bund, “Underworld” (アンダーワールド), the hunt for Akira has spilled over to public areas where the “general public” mills about, except this is a rather special group of the “general public”: This is the Bund, so they are all vampires. Becoming a vampire definitely seems to addle people’s […]
